Carpet Cleaning Services – How to Get Your Money’s Worth

Springtime is a time when most people give their homes a thorough cleaning. If you plan to clean your carpet this season, you may want to give careful thought to who will be doing the job. Is it a do-it-yourself project or is it best left to a professional?

If you are seeking a professional carpet cleaning service, be sure to do your homework. With so many choices and advertised prices that run the gamut, you want to be sure you are getting your money’s worth. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) offers the following tips to help your search go more smoothly:

  • To find a reputable company, ask around. Ask your family, friends and neighbors who they use to clean their carpets and who they would recommend to others.
  • Contact the BBB for a reliability report on the company.
  • Price does matter. The lowest price is not always the best price. While no one wants to be overcharged, extremely low prices should also set off warning signals. Companies that advertise very low prices may be practicing what is called “bait” advertising. Once the workers arrive in your home, they quickly suggest a more expensive treatment for the cleaning. Ask exactly what is included in the price and be sure to get it in writing before the crew begins any work.
  • Find out what you get for your money. Just as pricing can differ from company to company, so can the services included in the price and what the company considers “extras.” What type of cleaning agent does the company use and exactly how does it work? Will the cleaning company move furniture and return it to its original location? If so, is there an extra charge for this service? What about pre-treating spots and heavily soiled areas? Are there extra charges for high traffic areas? What if you are not happy with the cleaning? Is your satisfaction guaranteed?
  • Inquire about the company’s employees. After all, these are the people who will be coming into your home. Find out if the company uses its own employees or do they sub-contract the job out to other companies? Are they bonded and insured? Who is responsible if the crew damages the carpet or other items in your home?
  • Find out what care is required after the cleaning. How long will it take to dry? What kind of ventilation is needed? Can you get a written guarantee?

I read a few articles about this product being fatal to pets. There was also an article on the EPA website that mentioned that the Hartz Corporation has removed the harmful ingredient and replaced it with a harmless chemical.

Below are some natural ingredients to make a solution for pet odor and fleas. Mix Tea Tree oil or any of the following essential oils: Citronella or Lemon, Pennyroyal, Cedarwood and/or Eucalyptus and water. The dilution should be one drop of oil to 2ml of water. Shake well in a spray bottle and apply to animal, careful not to spray their eyes, ears, mouth or nose.

Here’s a link to the post on the ASPCA website about the expeirence that some pet owners have had with the product. You can also Google ” Hartz Flea Products” for more information.

Removing Pet Urine and Odor From Carpet

Unlike other odors, urine is more than simply an odor control issue or even a stain and odor issue. There is also a health issue. So there are three issues to be addressed – Stain, odor and decontamination.
The professional carpet cleaner views this as more than cleaning – it is decontamination. It is more than simply spraying some magical formula on the stain. Yet, many pet owners think their problems can be solved that easily.
Consider how much urine may be in their carpet, rug, or upholstery. A small dog or cat weighing five pounds or less will eliminate about 2 ounces of urine each time. If the animal urinates only twice a day, it amounts to well over 11 gallons per year. If the animal concentrates that into a small area or even several small areas, which many of them do, then the problem can be quite extensive.
Now think about the case where the animal is a Great Dane who considers the living room carpet to be his own special sandbox. The contamination gets worse when there are multiple animals in the home.

If the pet urine issue is minor and decontamination is not needed , please refer to our carpet cleaning prescott website for an at home do it yourself treatment. Urine decontamination is a problem that needs to handled by a professional carpet cleaner that has the knowledge, expertise, and equipment necessary to evaluate and recommend a plan of action for decontamination.
